Xenon Light Experiment
Posted 08 December 2010 - 06:43 PM
I am an artist doing an experimental project and I am wondering if any of you have seen a Xenon light break a mirror or if it is even possible? I know that mirrors are used to direct Xenon lights and that the lights get really hot. What I would really like to do is film a Xenon light breaking a mirror, is it possible? Any suggestions on how to do this?

A xenon or HMI can break glass but you would waste a lot of time and footage waiting for it to happen. You would have more control if you built a rig to simulate a light breaking a mirror, and even that would have to be built and would cost some time. But then it would be repeatable if you don't like your first take.
Thanks for the suggestion!
